Elephant’s Orphan Project – David Sheldrick WIldlife Trust – AKA unbearably sweet video

Dame Daphne Sheldrick, founder of the DSWT, pioneered the milk formula and husbandry needed to successful hand-rear milk dependent orphan baby elephants.

These skills and Daphne’s knowledge have continued to develop over the years and been shared with keepers at the charity’s orphanage in Nairobi. To date, more than 140 elephant orphans have been successfully rehabilitated, all will eventually return to the wild where they belong.

This film provides an insight into what it is to be an orphan elephant rescued by the DSWT.
